This example is based on a recipe from the Paradata Cookbook, which shows an assertion from a Learning Management System (LMS) endorsing a group. Assertions like this can be particularly helpful when creating trust relationships between systems, especially in the realm of standards alignments and other expert opinions. Information about the group, including id/url, is included in the object space.

Other terms that may be considered valid synonyms for similar actions: vouch, certify, affirm.
